The Peer Health Educators (PHEs) are a diverse group of 45 UVA students trained to educate their classmates about college health and wellness issues in a positive, interactive, fun, and nonjudgmental manner.
Comprehensive training prepares the PHEs to provide confidential patient education sessions; facilitate dynamic outreach programs; encourage physical, mental, and spiritual health; create informative awareness events; and promote community support to create a healthy culture.

If you would like to learn more about mental wellness, sexuality, alcohol, and other college-health issues, would like to be part of an effort to raise awareness of these issues on Grounds, and have the interest and the time to devote to being a PHE, we welcome your contribution to the program and encourage you to apply.
